The United Nations Development Program says it is impressed with the resilience and initiative of cyclone victims in Vanuatu.
The UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Vanuatu Osnat Lubrani was in the country helping with the latest damage assessment report, the recommendations of which are expected to be known next week.
Ms Lubrani says wherever she went during her time in Vanuatu, people had started to rebuild their lives.
"You see people they are not waiting the communities are picking up. They are rebuilding things where ever the materials still exist. They are putting together their lives. But they do need our support, they really do. And that's why I am calling for continued attention and vigilance."
Ms Lubrani says so far only 46% of the estimated financial support needed for the recovery has been provided with more than 90% of food gardens destroyed and 70% of Vanuatu's population affected.
